NETLIST window and blinking of all pins on the selected net

Easier drill down to component pins, trace runs and schematic. Display NETLISTS quickly using the "NET INFORMATION" window that displays the NET NAME of the selected component and pin and all the other pins on the net. The trace run of the selected net is highlighted and all pins on the net blink. If the schematic view is displayed then the net chosen is shown. The user can then select any one of the other pins on the net in the NET INFORMATION box. The result is the NET INFORMATION window will update to the new selected pin and the selected trace highlighted will update also. If the schematic view is displayed then that view will refresh too.

Why Companies Choose Unisoft

Do you have special problems? For example: You do not have the native CAD files for your project. You only have the Gerber Files and a BOM (Bill Of Materials). You need to program your ATE "Automatic Test Equipment" and you do not know where to turn — Our software can do it for you! The software takes your Gerber files and BOM and creates the exact Reference Designators, Net List, X/Y, Part Number, Values and Tolerance data you need to program your project. This powerful feature of ProntoTEST-FIXTURE can automatically create the Netlist from your raw Gerber files in addition to the real reference designators, theta rotation, part numbers, X/Y component pin geometries, values, tolerances, etc. The netlist is a mandatory item for most Test Departments and repair technicians. ProntoTEST-FIXTURE does this by automatically tracking and connecting the copper traces on the PC Board assembly to correct components, pins and vias for each net. Of course the software also imports virtually all standard native CAD file types too!

A possible next step in your evaluation is an informal online demonstration. To schedule a demonstration, please call us (enable JavaScript for our phone number) or email us ().

Customer Comments

"We have used the Unisoft software since 1993 and it works great! ProntoTEST-FIXTURE is a very good tool.

"Just a note to say I am using the free Unisoft PC Board CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software extensively for a task I am working on. I think the difficulty of an alternate method would greatly increase the time to completion. In addition to our licensed copies of the Unisoft software we have over 50 users of the Unisoft free CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software at this Vermont plant. Unisoft has come to bat quickly anytime we have needed support."

John Harrington
BF Goodrich Aerospace

"I had an, error free, board and board_xy file within five minutes for our HP ATE …. Thanks for the excellent support really appreciated! This tool has definitely made a difference for us."

Donald L Crawford
Turnkey Test
California

"I just want to say thanks for developing a software that allows technicians to troubleshoot PCB assembly / PCBA boards in a much easier and faster way. I definitely like the split screen option that allows you to view the board on one side and schematic on the other side. Since I have use this software, I throw away old schematics. Every time I launch the software, it makes me smile. A smile that is full of confidence knowing no matter how difficult a PCB assembly / PCBA board might be, by using the software I'm up for the challenge."

Best Regards
Josiah Mitchell

[About Josiah: Josiah (Joe) Mitchell sent the comments above in April of 2011. Joe is from Hunter Engineering Company (http://www.hunter.com/) out of Raymond, MS. They have a site license for the Unisoft software at their plant. They are a relatively new customer purchasing the software in April of 2010. Hunter makes automobile alignment systems, lift rack, wheel balancers, etc. and they use the Unisoft software throughout their plant.]


"By the way … I've been using the tool for DFT reviews lately and using it heavily and its working well. Also, I had a need to locate additional probe locations (vias) and the tool worked prefect because it labels vias where the CAD tool does not label vias. An unlabeled probe location(via) is an unusable location.

Anyway, I'm relying on the Factory 2000 tool for test DFT and test probe manipulation and it is working well."

"Excellent tool, we can design our fixtures and programs extremely fast and accurately."

Stan Magel

"We can identify test fixturing problem very quickly and the visual board display is helpful for the program debug process."

Luke Monopoli

"Being able to highlight a single or multiple traces and then to follow a signal or to find the potential location of shorted traces is a tremendous feature of the ProntoVIEW-MARKUP software, we use it every day."

Unisoft ProntoTEST-FIXTURE software helps reduce time and errors in developing your test programs and test fixture (Bed of Nails). ProntoTEST-FIXTURE is a cost effective solution for making your job easier and saving your company money. Circuit Master ProntoTEST-FIXTURE receives its input by importing virtually any CAD and Bill Of Materials (BOM). Import files from Gerber, Mentor Graphics, PADS, Intergraph, OrCAD, Protel, Accel PCAD, Accel Tango, Allegro, Cadence, Cadnetixs, Cadstar, Computervision, Edif, Verybest, Visula, etc. ProntoTEST-FIXTURE also imports standards such as ipcd356, ipc-2581, ipc2581, GENCAD, Fabmaster, etc.

Test Documentation Process Sheets

The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create matching test documentation process sheets for each step in the test process. Part numbers can be automatically assigned to the test steps you wish. (For example: Step 1 "Connector - Place Test Probes here for trace opens testing!", Step 2 "Switch - Make sure all switches are in OPEN position prior to In-Circuit ATE testing!", etc.) The part numbers are then automatically uniquely colored. If needed, overlay annotation notes can be added to each step. Next for each step matching test assembly drawings and lists are created. These drawings can either be printed or save to a file (PDF Adobe, etc.) or displayed on the screen.

Quoting - Assembly Cost Estimate Report

Import your PC Board into the Unisoft manufacturing software and you instantly receive a report containing component counts for top and bottom of the PC Board broken down by SMT, Fine pitch, BGA's, Thru-hole, etc. with the cost for each group. You can create as many Assembly Cost templates as you wish, for example one each for either a Low, Medium or High volume build. This is a great quoting time saver for Contract and OEM manufacturers.

Assembly and Process Sheets

The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create matching assembly lists and assembly drawing sheets for each step in the assembly process. Part numbers are automatically assigned to the assembly step you wish. (For example: Step 1 for Hand Inserts, Step 2 Chip Shooter components, etc.) The part numbers are then automatically uniquely colored. If needed, overlay annotation notes can be added to each step. Next for each step matching assembly lists and assembly drawings are created. These drawings can either be printed or save to a file (PDF Adobe, etc.) or displayed on the screen.

Kitting Labels

The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create Kitting Labels for fast and accurate electronic component kitting. Quickly select the component part numbers for which you wish kitting labels created. Each label contains the part number, unique part number color, step number, p/n description, reference designator, etc. Fast and easy electronic kitting labels for kitting work orders.

First Article Inspection

Generally First Article Inspection is done on the first PC Boards assembled. When the assembly inspection is satisfactory at that point the PC Board can be built reliably in quantity.

The Unisoft software allows you to BLINK all the components in each part number. The person doing the First Article Inspection would check that each of those components are correctly installed. If all where correct then they would click the DRAW button to color those components to indicate they are correct. A check mark is placed next to the part number indicating it has been completed. The inspector would continue this process for each part number until all part numbers are colored at which point that would indicate the PC Board was assembled correctly. At that point the PC Board can be built in quantity.


Free PC Board CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer Software

The Unisoft software outputs a single file that is compatible with the royalty free CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software. Customers are licensed to distribute the CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software and your single board file to your production floor, vendors, customers, etc. to aid assembly, First Article Inspection, general inspection, repair/rework, technician debug, for better communications, etc. No need to purchase additional licenses. The free CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer assists assembly personnel, technician troubleshooting, repair personnel, enhances communications internally and with customers and outside vendors. Our customers typically put the CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer and the board files for each of their PCB assemblies on their network so that it can be accessed by everyone to improve productivity.

Circuit Master TEST generates the necessary circuit description files for most popular in-circuit and flying probe ATE (Automatic Test Equipment). TEST creates in minutes such popular file formats as Teradyne .IPL (.DAT), GenRad .CKT, Agilent/Hewlett Packard board forms and many others.

Circuit Master FIXTURE generates test fixture drill plans, wire plans, and optimized test probe placements. Using the design CAD files, FIXTURE performs testability analysis before the first board is built to detect and correct problems such as untestable nets due to no test probe access. FIXTURE then creates all the necessary files the fixture fabrication house needs the build your fixture quickly and accurately.

Customer Comments

"By the way … I've been using the tool for DFT reviews lately and using it heavily and its working well. Also, I had a need to locate additional probe locations (vias) and the tool worked prefect because it labels vias where the CAD tool does not label vias. An unlabeled probe location(via) is an unusable location.

"Anyway, I'm relying on the Factory 2000 tool for test DFT and test probe manipulation and it is working well."

"Just a note to say I am using the free Unisoft PC Board CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software extensively for a task I am working on. I think the difficulty of an alternate method would greatly increase the time to completion. In addition to our licensed copies of the Unisoft software we have over 50 users of the Unisoft free CAD Viewer & Gerber Viewer software at this Vermont plant. Unisoft has come to bat quickly anytime we have needed support."

John Harrington

"Just to let you know the ProntoTEST-FIXTURE software found two DFT (Design For Test) problems before the first artwork spin - great! The CAD guys corrected them. After that I ran the board and board XY for the HP and it was perfect. Surprising when something works start to finish the first time through!"
